My beagle Candy isn’t just a pet,
she is part of my family. She has a big job to do,
like comforting my son during a loud thunder storm.
When he gets scared, she sits on his lap, licks him
and stays right by his side.
She comforts us in bad days. We look forward to playing with her,
and going for walks. Early in the morning
she is the first one to wake us all up and greet us,
with her tail wagging. Her job is to wake us up,
alert us to strangers, and so much more. Naturally she
loves to help out with many things. She loves giving us a
nice beagle song , for grocery day. Her favorite past time
is chasing butterflies with my son, and playing ball.
Since Candy is a huge part of our family, I pay close attention
dog ad campaigns. I enjoy watching these ads geared towards
dogs and their owners.
There are so many dogs, that they had to expand. Its the Dog Superbowl!
Who doesn’t love to watch these gorgeous dogs show their stuff. So having it in two places gives fans a chance to check out the dogs, and buy some cool dog bling.
Some new breeds this year are.the Treeing Walking Coonhound, and the Russel Terrier.
I’m fascinated by the Treeing Walking Coonhound, who gets
its name by chasing a raccoon up a tree. Its absolutely
fascinating to watch these coonhounds climb up a tree. They
look like a huge beagle. A new favorite for me to watch this year.

Last year we all watched Uno’s sister Allie
step into the ring. I haven’t heard of any
beagles to watch for. Just have to tune in
and see. If you know of any beagles that
are competing for best in show, tell us about it.
